Is a restraining order a legal separation?
4 attorney answers
No. Temporary Orders of Protection and Orders of Protection can be used to terminate a lease under certain circumstances but it is not a legal separation. If there are children and you wish to see them, you should petition the court to modify the restraining order so that you can have access with your children.

Restraining orders and legal separations are not the same thing. You really should consult with an experienced divorce attorney in White Plains, so they can walk you through the difference, and provide any representation necessary.

Please do not message me here on Avvo. The original question does not accompany your message so I have no idea what you are talking about. Simply respond as a comment under the question and I'll see the comment and know which question your comment applies to. Always remember I am not establishing an attorney/client relationship with you here and I am not giving you legal advice for your case. I am only providing an education in the workings of the law using your fact pattern as an example and in no way am I helping you prepare your case for court. Further, I do not know your case. If you retained a lawyer, do not use Avvo to second guess your lawyer. Your lawyer knows your facts.
No its not. They are totally different. You really need to speak to an attorney asap to discuss your matter and what your next steps should be. If you have kids you may need to petition the court asap to modify the restraining order.
